Top: Salmon with Cucumber, Cherries, and Avocado | Borrowed Salt
I don’t know about you, but the quickest way to get my kids to say yes to a big bowl of roasted veggies is to serve it doused in mango tahini like in this gorgeous Moroccan Spiced Vegetable and Chickpea Bowl with Mango Tahini Sauce at Simple Natural Nutrition. I also love that you can easily make extra of nearly every element of this perfect #MeatlessMonday meal — the sauce, the veggies, the rice — to have on hand for other meals or packed lunches the rest of the week.
Southwestern Turkey Burgers with Guacamole and Spicy Aioli | Joyful Healthy Eats
Summertime means adding burgers to regular meal plan rotation, and this week I’ve got my eye on the Southwestern Turkey Burgers from Joyful Healthy Eats that Jane found to demonstrate one of the six expert tips she got on how to grill perfect burgers. Jane gives a great shortcut on how to make the spiced aioli and you can also pick up store-bought guac to make these even faster. I promise they’ll still be delicious.
Salmon with Cucumber, Cherries, and Avocado | Borrowed Salt
The cherries in my supermarket are beautiful right now and they won’t last long, so you can bet that I’m all over every single one of these easy cherry recipes that I found for every meal of the day. Yes, including dessert. But for dinner, it’s all about the amazing Salmon with Cucumber, Cherries, and Avocado at Borrowed Salt. Light, fresh, and full of flavor, this recipe is a regular for me every time this time of year rolls around.
Pasta can be too much in the summer, but when done correctly — like this Caprese Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes and Burrata at Honestly Yum — well then, pasta can be just right. I love roasting cherry tomatoes on a Sunday to have on hand for various uses during the week, and this is a perfect way to use some up. Also, if you’d rather keep this vegetarian, just skip the prosciutto. Easy peasy.
I’ve been dying to make this Lomo Saltdado (Peruvian Stir Fry) at A Cozy Kitchen for a very long time. If you follow Adrianna, you can probably tell from the photo alone that this is from an old post (2012, to be exact). It’s for a recipe from her childhood and, to be honest, it has one very annoying step. She offers a shortcut that sounds delicious, but it isn’t one that I’d ever use. I recently discovered the joys of these Alexia Yukon Gold French Fries, though, and they’ll do the job perfectly, so this recipe is finally on my meal plan. I think it should be on yours too.
